  1. Funny/Bizarre Internet Stuff

    Great. And now I've got that do deal with.
  2. Do you play a "winter ball"?

    I do, depending on the brand. I currently use the Titleist TruSoft yellow when leaves start falling and the fairways start turning beige. Maybe just my eyes, but I find them easier to see than white golf balls among leaves and on dormant grass. (I've heard that Srixon makes a different white, and I haven't tried that; maybe this winter). I tried Bridgestone e6 yellow a couple years ago, and I found that particular yellow harder to see in winter than the Titleist (then the SoLo). I've got a few Volvik Vivids that I want to try this year.
  3. 8 shot penalty for Ben Crane?

    Update: He's now been disqualified because he knew about the 6 iron. http://www.golfchannel.com/news/golf-central-blog/crane-hit-two-four-shot-penalties-boise-open/?p=ya5nbcs&ocid=yahoo&yptr=yahoo
  4. Pawn shop Mizuno MP33

    From the USGA database: Play on. They conform.
  5. Strokes gained on the fairway?

    Some of us higher handicappers are also looking at our strokes gained (and lost) to improve our game. I think you've found a good pro to learn from.
  6. Revolution Golf vs Top Speed Golf, ETC

    By the way, Golf Channel bought Revolution Golf: https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikmatuszewski/2017/08/07/golf-channel-acquires-revolution-golf-boosting-digital-audience-to-15-million/ I expect that it may get more publicity/marketing now.
  7. Switcheroo

    Fortunately, some of the commenters at the end of the article saw the problem. One even proposed the setup of "game 1" of this thread.
  8. Low Rounds

    Broadie also has a monthly column in GOLF magazine called Every Shot Counts. He explains some of his methodology there, what it means and what it doesn't mean, how it's useful to understand the pros' games and how it applies to a hacker like me. This month, he replied to Twitter questions from Hank Haney and Brandel Chamblee to clarify some scrambling and short game stats. I don't have Broadie's book. But reading one article a month?--I can do that.
  9. Best places to live with great muni golf

    I would have guessed Scotland.
  10. Gears Golf - overhead of impact - am vs pro

    But over in this thread, So are these two studies comparing different levels of us amateurs, so they're getting different numbers and different conclusions?
  11. Beware of FAKE Mizuno Irons

    Maybe they just wanted your credit card.
  12. Howdy from Tulsa

    Welcome! I played South Lakes last week--fun course without nasty surprises.
  13. Desktop Stat Tracker

    Other options: thegrint.com (free) myscorecard.com (starts at $10 a year)
  14. Indianapolis to South Bend couses

    I haven't played there since 2014. Of the two courses, I played his Kampen course a couple of times and it was in great condition then. The other (Ackerman Hills) was completely redesigned by Dye in the last couple of years--torn up, plowed up, re-routed--and is now called Ackerman-Allen. My son graduated from Purdue before it was finished, so I haven't been there to play it since they finished it.
  15. Indianapolis to South Bend couses

    There's a pair of Pete Dye courses at Purdue University in West Lafayette.
